Living a balanced life is challenging for me. Taking care of myself spiritually, physically, creatively and emotionally – while being a conscious and supportive mother, wife, friend and employer – is demanding and requires constant adjustments. And then, there is the challenge of staying true to one’s mission in life.
Our mission at Nunn Design is: “Through collaborative relationships, Nunn Design inspires and nurtures creativity”. I believe that everyone is creative. We are all born with that natural ability and desire to express ourselves in some creative form or another. In our busy lives it is all too easy to loose sight of our creative natures. We no longer find the time to nurture and feed this part of ourselves.
This past week we posted on our blog a Give Away for our Glass Keepsake Pendants. At the end of the contest, we drew a winner at random. I was so touched by what the winner wrote, that I went onto the blog to re-read carefully all of the comments left in the contest. As I read all 20, I knew that I wanted everyone to win. I wanted everyone to have the opportunity to create for themselves the pendants they described.
I feel so grateful to be in the line of work that I am. I design and produce products that allow people to create meaning in their lives. I am true to our mission.
Thank you to all of you who took the time to comment on our blog. I myself have been inspired and nurtured.
About Becky’s necklace: There is a little scroll with the message “I am all that I believe I am”. A reminder to myself that it is only my mind that limits me.
There is also a seed pod, helping me remember that all good ideas start with a small seed.
The small pearls are symbolic of the pearls of wisdom that I have gathered over my 45 years here on this planet. They may seem small, but they are the soil in which my seed pod can bloom.
